Whiteman faculty lauds grads Robert ‘Bobby’ Rankin wins Head of School Award for contributing to school Brandon Gee



From the moment The Lowell Whiteman School’s class of 2009 entered the gymnasium to Buffalo Springfield instead of “Pomp and Circumstance,” it was clear Friday’s graduation wasn’t going to be your typical commencement exercise.

With 32 graduates, the ceremony was atypical even by the school’s standards. The private high school in Strawberry Park has graduated that many seniors only once before. And never have so many graduates — 19 — attended Lowell Whiteman all four years of high school. Twenty-one 2009 Lowell Whiteman graduates have received scholarships totaling

$188,750. They will attend several schools in Colorado and across the country. Buddy Kinder will enroll as a cadet at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. “We are all very proud of them and what they’ve accomplished,” said Nancy Ventrudo, president and chairwoman of the school’s

Cyclist John Ward rides his bike in one of the recently created bike lanes on Oak Street in downtown Steamboat. The city is undertaking a number of initiatives to make Steamboat Springs more bike- and pedestrian-friendly.

Bike growth emphasized City plans upgrades for riders, pedestrians Brandon Gee



The city of Steamboat Springs is making the most of a strapped budget in an effort to maintain the “Bicycle Friendly Community” designation it received two years ago from the League of American Bicyclists. A new bike lane has been painted on Oak Street in Old Town Steamboat, and it has been very well received by local cyclists. “It was just a step we could do at very minimal cost,” said Public Works Director Philo Shelton, who noted the bike lane matches a downtown streetscape plan approved by the city last year. “It kind of tells people where they need to be and helps them share the road better.” Deputy City Manager Wendy


Fred Gardner and Mary Labor recently were named the 2008-09 Friends of Education by the Steamboat Springs School Board. Gardner created the district’s 5th Quarter program, and Labor has coordinated the school district’s spring flower sale for the past eight years.

DuBord said the Steamboat Springs City Council has set a goal of making downtown Steamboat more pedestrian friendly. A news release from Routt County Riders bicycle club notes that the group recommended the bike lane and said it soon will be followed by a similar lane on Yampa Street. The group also is working to build new trails on Emerald Mountain. There are a number of other pedestrian and bicycle improvements planned or under way in the city, and the Routt County Board of Commissioners is scheduled to begin discussions later this month about multiple uses of county roads. “I think everything has been well received,” said Robin Craigen, of Routt County Riders.

Stutz said in an e-mail. But the path isn’t completely free of obstacles. Xcel has asked for amendments to the special use permit the Routt County Board of Commissioners approved for the project. The requested changes are scheduled to go before the Routt County Planning Department on June 18. The initial permit allowed as many as five trains a week consisting of about 70 cars each. Xcel


has asked to change that to 115 cars per train. That’s a result of Union Pacific Railroad requirements, according to the application for an amendment. “We believe that the (Union Pacific) will make only three or sometimes four trips a week, however,” Stutz wrote in the email. “So there is an anticipated reduction in the number of total trips per week.” The Xcel plan consists of recon-

structing an existing rail spur to take coal to the Hayden plant. The project will include railroad bridges over U.S. Highway 40 and Routt County Road 27. The county approved the plans in 2007. As part of the requested amendments, Xcel wants the county to remove a bond for the U.S. 40 bridge. The Colorado

Lost hiker found in Flat Tops Wilderness

Top 10 most-read online stories For the week of May 28 to June 3, 2009

Brandon Gee



1.“Intrawest declines to invest in new gondola” May 29 1,696 pageviews


A hiker who had been missing for more than 24 hours in the Flat Tops Wilderness was found alive and well Saturday with help from Routt County Search and Rescue volunteers. Seven Routt County Search and Rescue members joined a four-person team from Garfield County in the search for Thad Childs, 28. Before he was found shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday, Childs had last been seen walking away from Mosquito Lake at about noon Friday where he had been camping with four other people. Mosquito Lake is in the Flat Tops Wilderness about 1.5 miles from the Stillwater Reservoir trailhead and parking lot west of Yampa. Search and Rescue Commander Dawn Alperti said all five members of the camping party live in Colorado. She was unsure why Childs decided to set out on his own for a hike. The other members of Childs’ party said it was not uncommon for him to take long hikes by himself,

which is why they did not call rescuers until their second failed attempt to find him Saturday morning. “He was in really good shape,” Alperti said about Childs. Early Saturday afternoon, a helicopter was called in from Rifle to assist the search, and a ropes team was on standby. Searchers tracked the man north of Mosquito Lake to a vast area in the vicinity of Devil’s Causeway, Routt County Search and Rescue spokesman Darrel Levingston said. By late afternoon, Alperti said the searchers were beginning to call off the search for the day and prepare for a resumed effort today. One group of searchers decided to look a bit longer, and at about that time Childs appeared on Devil’s Causeway. “He really was not the least bit fazed despite his adventure,” Alperti said. Alperti said Childs had become disoriented after crossing Devil’s Causeway on Friday, and he spent the night near a creek bed.

Golfer Boyd Bass registers with Jody Patten before the start of the ninth annual Fairway Face-Off golf tournament last week at the Catamount Ranch & Club.The tournament benefits the Steamboat Springs Youth Hockey Academic Scholarship Fund and has awarded more than $20,000 to local students. Local charity golf tournament organizers are seeing mixed fundraising results because of the down economy.

Shades of green Golfer numbers, sponsorships vary for charity tournaments


olf tournament season is in full swing in Steamboat Springs, and many of the local charity drives still are carting in the greenbacks. Several tournament organizers say they’re feeling few negative economic STORY BY impacts. Some BLYTHE say their events are attracting TERRELL fewer golfers but strong sponsorships. For others, it’s the opposite. The Board of Realtors opted to move its tournament to September to ease pressure on businesses that could be reeling from a parade of donationseekers. For many organizations, the annual golf tournament is the year’s biggest fundraiser. Barbara Robinson helped organize the Youth Education Scholarship tournament last week. A day before the event, she had nearly 100 golfers signed up, compared with about 80 last year. The $135 tournament was Wednesday at Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club. Sponsorships were slightly tougher to find this year, Robinson said. “It was just a little more challenging, and we certainly appreciate that and are very grateful for those that can help and did help,” she said. The Chamber Resort Association Ambassadors put on the 21st annual event. Proceeds go to scholarships for youths across Routt County. The tournament still included an array of prizes, such as food from Sheraton Steamboat Resort, beer from B&K Distributing and a car from Steamboat Motors for a hole-in-one contest. Sponsors in the $600 category declined from 36 to 26, and in the $150 category they declined by three, Robinson said. Still, she was impressed by the increased golfer numbers. “It’s just fantastic how the support comes in,” Robinson said.


Numbers dip Unlike the Y.E.S. venture, the Ski Town USA Golf Classic, the Steamboat Springs Youth Hockey Association and the Know the Signs … Save a Life tournaments are drawing fewer golfers this year. The Ski Town tournament raises money for the Healthcare Foundation for the Yampa Valley. Steamboat’s two Rotary clubs help put it on. Organizer Mike Forney said support from the business community had been impressive. The event also includes a silent auction. “I think that while it looks like we’re going to have between 150 and 160 golfers, which is about I think maybe 15 to 20 percent less than we normally would have, the auction event, we have had such tremendous support from local businesses and companies,” Forney said. The two-day tournament costs $495 a golfer, and the events netted about $130,000 for charity last year, he said. This year, money is going to the cardiology unit at Yampa Valley Medical Center. The hospital “doesn’t get any tax monies or that type of

thing,” Forney said. “It has to be a self-sufficient nonprofit organization, so these fundraisers are very, very important to the viability of our medical care here in the Yampa Valley.” The youth hockey tournament had 48 golfers compared with about 70 in the past, organizer Jody Patten said. But it raised nearly $5,000 from golfers and an auction, and she was pleased with the results. Sandy Dye’s family organizes the Save a Life tournament. The proceeds go to organizations that help prevent youth suicide. Golfer numbers had dropped, she said, but the group is accepting all donations through the Yampa Valley Community Foundation. “We’ll be back next year,” Dye said. “Hopefully, the economy will be stronger, and people will be more able to play and to contribute.”

golf tournament supports. The event consists of a dinner Monday at the Sheraton and golf Tuesday at Catamount Ranch Club, VNA spokeswoman Suzi Mariano said. The hospice tournament allows 24 teams, and it’s full, Mariano said. “We’re actually pretty much on par — no pun intended — with what we’ve done in past years,” she said. “So we’ve had really strong sponsorship this year, and we’re really happy about it. People in this community do a really good job of supporting hospice.” Still, others have been cautious. Ulrich Salzgeber, of the Board of Realtors, said his group decided a couple of weeks ago to postpone its tournament. The Realtors moved the event from June to Sept. 16. “There is just such a congestion of other tournaments in June, and … the economy is not ripe, and the businesses get beat up on a daily basis to donate,” Salzgeber said. He was optimistic that business would get better. See Golf, page 8A

Mainstreet Steamboat Springs is sharpening its focus and making sure it keeps member businesses’ priorities in mind during the tough economic climate. Mainstreet Manager Tracy Barnett sent an e-mail to members in late May, asking whether they wanted to continue supporting the Steamboat Wine Festival. The agency will contribute to the wine stroll but has looked twice at other events. For example, Mainstreet’s board decided not to donate dollars to the Free Summer Concert Series. “At a recent board meeting, we discussed the funding for several of the events we have helped to fund in the past and felt that we needed to concentrate what funding we have on creating new events and supporting more of the events Mainstreet is already committed to,” Barnett wrote in the e-mail. Those include the planned Sisters in Steamboat event, a women-focused social weekend in October. They also include the Restaurant Week held last month, another of which is planned for fall, Barnett said in an interview. Mainstreet members opted to donate $1,750 to the wine stroll, instead of the $2,000 the group contributed last year. Barnett is working within a budget of nearly $142,000. Of that, $37,000 goes toward advertising, and $15,000 goes toward promotions. Money for the summer concert series isn’t included as a line item in the Mainstreet budget, according to draft minutes from the May 5 board meeting. Part of the concern, Barnett said, is that the agency doesn’t have extra dough for new events. “We just don’t have a whole lot of money in the budget for any of this,” she said. “If I have events that I can ask downtown businesses to participate in and they give me some cash, we can do a lot more. As far as the budget we already have, we don’t have a See Mainstreet, page 10A

Clarifying the facts


Holding out hope for a new post office


e all should hope talks between the U.S. Postal Service and local developer Brian Olson can save the deal that would result in a new post office at Pine Grove Road and U.S. Highway 40, because the Postal Service’s apparent willingness to jump ship and make its curAT ISSUE rent downtown location the Post office only Steamboat postal facility is move unacceptable. The contractual agreement, OUR VIEW in place since the fall, says that Olson and his team will build a Whether new standalone postal facility temporary or in their proposed City South permanent, development at the southwest plans to corner of U.S. 40 and Pine consolidate Grove Road. In exchange for all postal some cash and building the new post office, Olson would receive operations to the Third and Lincoln land parthe Third and cel where the downtown post Lincoln office branch resides. Olson prelocation are viously has said the deal stipuunacceptable. lates that the new post office be completed by Aug. 30, 2011. In the interim, the Postal Service had announced plans to close its satellite branch in the Sundance at Fish Creek shopping center, temporarily making the downtown post office the only branch in Steamboat. That’s a bad idea even as a temporary measure — officials long have considered the Third Street and Lincoln Avenue location inefficient and the cause of increased downtown traffic congestion. The building itself doesn’t meet the needs of the Postal Service, particularly because of its insufficient loading bays for mail trucks. But this week, apparently angered by a letter from Olson suggesting some of the terms of their agreement need to be revisited, Postal Service officials in Denver took the unusual step of contacting city of Steamboat Springs officials and the Steamboat Pilot & Today to announce the deal was off. Postal Service officials went on to say they were preparing to move the 2,584 post office boxes in the Sundance branch to the downtown location, where they would be installed in the space formerly occupied by the Coldwell Banker Silver Oak’s real estate office. There are 5,243 post office boxes already at the Third and Lincoln location — 5,127 of which are occupied. We can only hope the Postal Service’s reaction is part of a hard-ball negotiating tactic with Olson. Increasing the number of postal customers by 50 percent at an already poor location is bad for all residents. Deputy City Manager Wendy DuBord acknowledged as much in a memo to City Council members Wednesday. In part, the memo read, “I told (Postal Service official Leigh Hettick) this was a huge problem for the community as that is a big impact to traffic congestion, pedestrian safety, parking, etc. I also stated that CDOT may have some concerns about an additional 2,500 users at this location off Highway 40.” Postal Service officials say they remain committed to working with the city to alleviate traffic and safety concerns at the downtown branch. We hope that’s not just lip service. Even the status quo — operating downtown and Sundance branches — is far superior to moving all post office operations to Third and Lincoln. But the new location in City South offers significant promise, particularly if traffic studies and appropriate planning result in a redesigned intersection at U.S. 40 and Pine Grove Road. Olson also has announced plans for a pedestrian underpass along Fish Creek, reducing the need for cyclists and walkers to navigate the dangerous intersections along U.S. 40. We’ll leave the negotiations to the parties involved, but we can offer a few additional suggestions to the Postal Service and local postal customers: ■ Officials say many existing clusterboxes in Steamboat neighborhoods aren’t being fully utilized. We encourage residents to inquire about space in those clusterboxes near their homes. Use of those reduces the need to visit a post office branch, and thereby reduces traffic. ■ Consider adding a couple of remote drop boxes for residents mailing flat-rate envelopes and boxes. Technology allows postal customers to order flat-rate boxes and envelopes online, and even pay for their postage online and print out and affix the associated label. But those customers still must get in their cars and drive to a post office branch to drop off their packages. Ultimately, the future of the deal rests solely in the hands of developers and the Postal Service. But the result will affect each of us.


Keeping them honest Paul Krugman


“I appreciate your efforts and look forward to working with you so that the Congress can complete health care reform by October.” So declared President Barack Obama in a letter this week to Sens. Max Baucus and Edward Kennedy. The big health care push is officially on. But the devil is in the details. Health reform will fail Krugman unless we get serious cost control — and we won’t get that kind of control unless we fundamentally change the way the insurance industry, in particular, behaves. So let me offer Congress two pieces of advice: 1) Don’t trust the insurance industry. 2) Don’t trust the insurance industry. The Democratic strategy for health reform is based on a political judgment: the belief that the public will be more willing to

accept reform, less easily Harryand-Louised, if those who already have health coverage from private insurers are allowed to keep it. But how can we have fundamental reform of what Obama calls a “broken system” if the current players stay in place? The answer is supposed to lie in a combination of regulation and competition. It’s a sign of the way the political winds are blowing that insurers aren’t opposing new regulations. Indeed, the president of America’s Health Insurance Plans, the industry lobby known as AHIP, explicitly has accepted the need for “much more aggressive regulation of insurance.” What’s still not settled, however, is whether regulation will be supplemented by competition, in the form of a public plan that Americans can buy into as an alternative to private insurance. Now, nobody is proposing that Americans be forced to get their insurance from the government. The “public option,” if it materializes, will be just that — an option Americans can choose. And the

reason for providing this option was laid out in Obama’s letter: It will give Americans “a better range of choices, make the health care market more competitive and keep the insurance companies honest.” Those last five words are crucial because history shows that the insurance companies will do nothing to reform themselves unless forced to do so. Consider the seemingly trivial matter of making it easier for doctors to deal with multiple insurance companies. In 1993, the political strategist (and former New York Times columnist) William Kristol, in a nowfamous memo, urged Republican members of Congress to oppose any significant health care reform. But even he acknowledged that some things needed fixing, calling for, among other things, “a simplified, uniform insurance form.” Fast forward to the present. A few days ago, major players in the health industry laid out what they intend to do to slow the growth in health care costs. Topping See Krugman, page 5A

Cutting the auto giant down to size Jules Witcover



When I was a kid growing up in the pre-Pearl Harbor days, the word that often described the average American family car was “transportation.” It meant that the automobile was primarily a way of getting from point A to point B, with few bells and whistles. After World War II, all that changed as the auto industry cultivated a huge public romance with the look, size and speed of the means of making that same basic journey. When GM CEO “Engine Charlie” Wilson as President Dwight Eisenhower’s nominee for secretary of defense famously proclaimed that what was “good for the country” was “good for General Motors and vice-versa,” there were few in the financial world who disagreed with him. But with the invasion of innovative foreign competitors and the American concept of big-is-better eroding the home industry’s commanding position, Engine Charlie’s axiom eventually withered away. Exploitative foreign oil prices hastened the erosion as Detroit gas-guzzlers such as the SUV con-

tinued to roll off the assembly lines, seemingly oblivious to the dire consequences ahead. The once-unthinkable outcome of General Motors declaring bankruptcy, with Uncle Sam frantically pouring huge financial transfusions into the dying patient, became a reality the other day as Uncle Sam took majority control of its management and risk. Maybe it’s time to go back to those pre-Pearl Harbor days when American cars were looked upon primarily as “transportation.” GM and Chrysler, as well as Ford, have strived in the past few years to make better and more practical vehicles and to convince American buyers to give them a second chance. But the horrible publicity suffered by two of the Big Three during the past several months has made the plea a particularly hard sell. If the home market for domestic-built cars is to rebound, it may take more than higher fuel efficiency and smooth road handling to get Americans to start buying GM and Chrysler products again. It’s a dilemma for the “new” managers of the essentially nationalized domestic auto industry, many of whom apparently come from the management corps that

was steering the business down a road to nowhere all these years. No matter what a stumbling industry is, sometimes it takes a radically fresh mind to get the creaking Tin Lizzie out of the ditch. After World War II, to give just one example, a little-known entrepreneur named George Romney in Michigan took the skeleton of a failing Nash brand and turned it into American Motors as an upstart against the Big Three. He introduced the concept of the compact car with the downsized Rambler that quickly caught on with low- and middle-income buyers. Romney personally capitalized on the compact-car success by running for governor of Michigan in 1962, was reelected in 1966 and became the frontrunner for the 1968 Republican presidential nomination, until his own candidacy ran out of gas and he lost out to Richard Nixon. The Rambler, like Romney’s political fortunes, also was eventually run off the road by the American car owner’s romance with size and glitz, provided by the Big Three. Maybe the U.S. car market needs another Rambler, and another George Romney — the auto innovator, not the politician.

After reading several editorials about the Pilot & Today’s lawsuit against the Steamboat Springs School Board, I feel compelled to clarify the facts. The current School Board, as well as the previous board, makes/made every effort to comply with the Sunshine Law. We do feel we have an obligation to do our business in public. The efforts of the Pilot to add more information to the motions were neither “ignored” nor “rebuffed.” The motion in question was reworded, and the phrase “involving access to information” was added to the personnel matter announcement for executive session. The Pilot refers to the Jan. 6, 2007, meeting as “the illegal meeting.” Three of the four judges reviewing the transcripts found the content of the meeting legal. The motion to go into executive session, made by Pat Gleason, was found to be deficient by two of the four judges because the name of the superintendent was not included. The previous board also has been accused of not trying to settle this case. This simply is not true. After the case initially was decided in favor of the district, and the motion made by the Pilot to reconsider the verdict was denied, an e-mail explored the possibility of ending the issue by turning over the tape of the executive session. The reply from the Pilot was that this “would not be sufficient.” It was stated this past week that the Pilot was willing to stop further litigation against the school district if $13,000 of legal fees were paid. The actual proposal also included three more points, one of which we contend would have put the district under future legal liability. It would have been irresponsible on our part to agree to these extra settlement conditions. Even without the extra conditions, I’m sure the taxpayers would have balked at paying the Pilot’s legal fees after the District Court had decided in favor of the district. In the past month, the board decided to settle the lawsuit as opposed to continuing on to the Colorado Supreme Court. When the Colorado Appeals Court made its decision, it issued an unpublished opinion. The “unpublished” status means the court does not consider the decision important as far as clarifying or adding to existing law, and it will not used as precedent in future litigation. The Supreme Court accepts a small percentage of cases each year, and it would be very unlikely that an unpublished case would be chosen for consideration. What this whole situation comes down to is that City Council and the School Board, consisting of community volunteers, now pay their attorneys to scrutinize their executive session agendas. Executive sessions are components of government bodies that are neither “secret” nor “illegal” and are fully allowed and, at times, required by state statute. The district now will pay $50,000 to the legal team representing the Pilot and the Colorado Press Association, who took the case on a contingency basis, and our own legal fees of $40,000. Was this really in the best interest of the community and our students? See Letters, page 5A

“Yes. That’s where the density belongs. Put all the density where it makes sense.”

the list of AHIP’s proposals was “administrative simplification.” Providers, the lobby conceded, face “administrative challenges” because of the fact that each insurer has its own distinct telephone numbers, fax numbers, codes, claim forms and administrative procedures. “Standardizing administrative transactions,” AHIP asserted, “will be a watershed event.” Think about it. The insurance industry’s idea of a cutting-edge, cost-saving reform is to do what William Kristol — William

Kristol! — thought it should have done 15 years ago. How could the industry spend 15 years failing to make even the most obvious reforms? The answer is simple: Americans seeking health coverage had nowhere else to go. And the purpose of the public option is to make sure that the industry doesn’t waste another 15 years — by giving Americans an alternative if private insurers fall down on the job. Be warned, however. The insurance industry will do everything it can to avoid being held accountable.

At first, the insurance lobby’s foot soldiers in Congress tried to shout down the public option with the old slogans: Private enterprise good, government bad. At this point, however, they’re trying to kill the public option in more subtle ways. The most recent ruse is the proposal for a “trigger” — the public option will become available only if private insurers fail to meet certain performance criteria. The idea, of course, is to choose those criteria to ensure that the trigger is never pulled. And here’s the thing. Without an effective public option, the

Obama health care reform will be simply a national version of the health care reform in Massachusetts: a system that is a lot better than nothing but has done little to address the fundamental problem of a fragmented system, and as a result has done little to control increasing health care costs. Right now the health insurers are promising to deliver major cost savings. But history shows that such promises can’t be trusted. As Obama said in his letter, we need a serious, real public option to keep the insurance companies honest.

Acknowledging Sen. White’s efforts to protect Colorado I guess it depends on your point of view. The sad aspect of this case is that in these tough economic times $90,000 can buy a lot of journalistic principle — or 3,000 textbooks, or 90 computers, or two teachers’ salaries. It’s high time to put personal agendas aside and concentrate on what’s best for our community and students. Our community and students deserve that. I sincerely hope the school district and the Pilot can have a better working relationship in the future.

Kudos to White With a substantial amount of finger-pointing going on in Colorado and Washington, D.C., politics, I think it’s important we also point to those who truly have represented the interests of their district and made good decisions, even when it wasn’t the popular thing to do. State Sen. Al White, RHayden, was a true defender of Colorado’s natural resources. When funding for the State Conservation Board was on the chopping block and 76 conservation districts were in jeopardy of losing significant funding that goes toward drought mitigation, soil and water management, noxious weed control, wildlife habitat management and more, White stepped up to the plate and protected this critical resource. These resources sustain our economy in Colorado, in the form of agriculture, hunt-

As a long-time Realtor in Steamboat, I have seen the rise and fall of the real estate market on more than one occasion. With the tremendous amount of properties for sale these days, the primary crop sprouting up this spring is the real estate sign. The city currently is reviewing the sign code, and I feel that they should prohibit the use of real estate signs. Other resort towns have adopted this ordinance, and I feel strongly that Steamboat should do the same. Simply stated, the signs are an eyesore. If someone wants to advertise a property for sale, they can do it in other ways that do not detract from the appeal of our wonderful community.

ing and fishing, and tourism. Without the State Conservation Board and the Colorado Association of Conservation Districts, there would be a missing link between private farm and ranch landowners, small ranchette owners and other suburban developments to assist in wise and proper management of natural resources. Colorado is blessed with abundant natural resources, and as our population continues to increase, it becomes more and more important to manage these resources wisely. We applaud Sen. White for his foresight, knowledge and courage to protect the things that make Colorado a special place to live.

That suspicion was confirmed in the final speech of the afternoon, when teacher and Dean of Students Mitch Globe honored his “hero” Holly Mayer. “We are supposed to mentor the kids and make them stronger,” Globe said. “What a gift it is when it goes the other way.”

Gardner and Labor to be honored with reception, given plaques before meeting Friends continued from 1A child,” said Lucianne Myhre, the leadership teacher at Steamboat Springs High School. Gardner said he and his wife, Denise, who have three sons, understand the challenges facing Steamboat youths. He saw a need for drug- and alcoholfree parties for local high school students, and he approached Myhre with an idea. “He had this idea, and he came to me and said ‘How do we do this?’” she recalled. Gardner, a Steamboat resident for four and a half years, said they kept it simple, not wanting to involve a lot of people that could lead to committees and meetings. So the program was handed off to the school’s Leadership Class to plan the events, and Gardner handled the rest. He finds locations for the events, solicits donations from the community and recruits volunteers, Myhre said. She said past activities — which typically cost students between $1

and $3 — have included movie and bowling nights, and dodgeball and kickball tournaments. Many of the activities end with raffles. Items such as iPods and gift cards have been given away. “The real purpose of 5th Quarter is to find fun, safe events for high school kids — drug- and alcohol-free parties where kids can have fun and be themselves,” Gardner said. Myhre added that Gardner has continued to organize the events, even after his youngest son, Grant, graduated from the high school in December. “We just felt the need in our community is significant, and we wanted the program to continue for many years to come,” he said. Gardner said the program, which is in its third year, will begin to hand off a greater role to Myhre’s Leadership Class. As such, this year’s Leadership Class worked on grant writing, managing budgets and promoting events. Myhre said Gardner “really has a passion for the program.”

“There would not be a 5th Quarter without Fred Gardner,” Myhre said. “It would not be possible without him.” School Board President Robin Crossan said Gardner has “worked tirelessly” to facilitate and run the program. “I never expected to be recognized for our involvement,” Gardner said about being named a Friend of Education. “My wife and I just thought this was the right thing to do.”

‘A small contribution’ Mary Labor’s role in the school district’s spring flower sale began as a volunteer for the Strawberry Park Parent-Teacher Information Committee after she and her family moved to Steamboat in 1998. Labor, who began spearheading the sale about eight years ago, said it has evolved from a small event to one that offers the opportunity for Steamboat’s public schools to raise some significant money. This year, the parent-teacher groups at Strawberry Park and

School Board member John DeVincentis offered a reason why. “I’ve known Mary for a long time, and she is absolutely dedicated to what she does for the schools,” he said. Labor said being named a Friend of Education came out of left field. She called organizing the flower sale, “a small contribution to the big picture.” “To me it’s a small thing, but if everyone contributes small things, it matters,” Labor said. “The little things count.” Gardner and Labor will be honored with a reception and presented with plaques before the June 15 School Board meeting. — To reach Jack Weinstein, call 871-4203 or e-mail

Organizers of other upcoming tournaments also remain optimistic. Linda Danter organizes Steamboat’s Rally for the Cure/ Yampa Valley Breast Cancer Awareness Project tournament. Proceeds are split between the organizations, Danter said. The tournament isn’t until July 14, but Danter said people were approaching her to ask about it. “I think we’ll have a really good turnout,” Danter said. The event raised $34,000 last year, she said, but she’s trying to align her expectations with reality. “We’re not going to have any high goals,” Danter said. “We’re just going to do the best we can.”

State looks to private charities to help repair system that is causing long waits THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Colorado is looking to private charities to help fix a computer system blamed for long waits for food stamps. The state’s $166.4 million computer system meant to process applications has been plagued by complaints since its inception five years ago. Now, the state may ask private assistance groups to chip in to help fix it. Colorado officials want the Colorado Benefits Management System improved within a year, The Denver Post reported Saturday. Several charitable groups have complained to Gov. Bill Ritter that they are swamped

with requests for food assistance by people facing long waits for food stamps. “The system isn’t working yet,” said Gretchen McComb, president of the Women’s Foundation of Colorado. Joanne Lindsay, a Department of Health Care Policy and Financing spokeswoman, told the newspaper that the charities met with state officials Friday. Lindsay said the meeting “was not an ask for money,” though she acknowledged they talked with foundation chiefs about possibly donating to help speed repairs. Jeff Hirota, a vice president at The Denver Foundation, attended Friday’s meeting. He said he

wasn’t sure about giving the state any money, but he said the problem is great. “We’re concerned about what we’re going to do right now while people are hungry,” he said. “We need to continue the conversation.” The problem, charities and counties say, is the unwieldy computer system. Last year, Colorado ranked 52nd in the nation and its territories for food-stamp application timeliness, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In some counties — including Jefferson, Denver and Adams — between 20 percent and 40 percent of applicants waited longer than 30 days to get a foodstamp card this spring.

It takes up to 45 minutes to enter data into CBMS, county officials say. The state’s application for these help programs is 26 pages long, and people aren’t able to apply for help remotely. State officials have promised to get a Web-based application system up and running by the first part of 2010. Charity leaders said they were worried about “marketing” food stamps when there are existing applications backlogged in counties. “My interest is to do whatever is necessary to get help to folks who need it,” Hirota said. “I think we need to work on a now solution and a long-term solution.”

Environmental concerns a part of years-long discussion Rail continued from 1A county to remove a bond for the U.S. 40 bridge. The Colorado Department of Transportation already requires a bond, so Xcel wants to cut redundant requirements and costs, county planner Chris Brookshire said. The utility also wants a change to allow for relocation of an electric line and the addition of a sloped embankment south of U.S. 40. That embankment would remove the need for a retaining wall and make it easier for wildlife to cross. The change was made possible by the planned purchase of the Garcia property, according to Xcel’s application. “The new spur design would place the rails on a berm that wildlife will be able to cross at-

grade at all points along the rail plan with them, and so far, so spur south of U.S. Highway 40, good,” Blakeslee said. “They’re which would essentially negate following the plan quite well, the need for a wildlife crossing and we’re working together to structure in this area,” the docu- accomplish what they’ve agreed ment states. to.” Environmental The utility’s rail “The design work concerns have spur would have is expected to be been a part of impaired access to complete at the end the years-long the ranch’s irrigaof this month.

Board of commissioners to work with Routt County Riders Bike continued from 1A been well received,” said Robin Craigen, of Routt County Riders. “We all know that it’s long overdue.” June is Colorado Bike Month. Locally, June also is Routt County Riders’ Bike to Work Month. Bike to Work Week is June 21 to 28, and Bike to Work Day is June 24. The city’s construction of a new sidewalk on 13th Street is under way. When completed, it will connect U.S. Highway 40 to the parking lot for West Lincoln Park. A paving project on Whistler Road also is under way, and Shelton said the city may stripe a bike lane there, too, if there’s any money remaining from the project. The city plans to create a crosswalk with a flashing sign at Maple Street and Amethyst Drive this year. Last month, Open Space and Trails Supervisor Craig Robinson said a 3,054foot extension of the Yampa River Core Trail in southern Steamboat could begin by July.

City engineer Janet Hruby said the city also has received grants from Great Outdoors Colorado and the Colorado Department of Transportation for a new pedestrian bridge across the Yampa River that would connect West Lincoln Park to the Core Trail. Cars, bikes and pedestrians now must share the 13th Street Bridge to cross the river in that area. Shelton said the bridge will be designed this year but won’t be built until next year at the earliest. Shelton said the city also has received a CDOT grant to conduct a “Share the Road” marketing campaign that has paid for a banner over Lincoln Avenue, as well as media advertisements. Hruby said she would like to say the city is doing more in the way of pedestrian and bicycle improvements but that city budget cuts have erased funds available in the city’s capital improvements plan for such projects. “We have no money in our CIP, so we’re scrapping togeth-

er what we can,” she said. Hruby said continued improvements are needed for the city to maintain its silver designation from the League of American Bicyclists, which recognized the city in 2007 and noted that Steamboat “has a strongly integrated off- and onroad bicycle system, featuring some of the best single-track in the country.” After a controversial decision last year to widen traffic lanes and thus shrink the broad shoulders enjoyed by cyclists on Routt County Road 36, the Routt County Board of Commissioners pledged to hold more extensive discussions with Routt County Riders and others about multiple uses of county roads. The first two discussions have been scheduled for 6 p.m. June 29 and 6 p.m. July 6. Commissioner Diane Mitsch Bush said the commissioners will receive information from county staff and take public comment about particular roads and concerns. At the second meeting, Mitsch Bush said

the commissioners will have had time to evaluate information and will talk more specifically about what policies they could adopt. Craigen said he is working with Routt County Riders members to identify specific issues and hopes the county will adopt policies that allow for “mutually respectful use of our county roads.” “I think a lot of people are interested in this and want to ride bikes more,” Craigen said. “But, quite frankly, people are afraid of county roads.” — To reach Brandon Gee, call 871-4210 or e-mail

Hundreds of people gathered Saturday to honor slain abortion provider Dr. George Tiller, eulogized by a longtime friend as a passionate and generous man who repeatedly overcame difficult challenges. Tiller’s funeral at College Hill United Methodist Church also drew small groups of protesters. Police and federal marshals provided heavy security. Tiller, one of the nation’s few providers of late-term abortions, was killed by a gunshot last Sunday in the foyer of his own church, Reformation Lutheran, while he was serving as an usher and his wife was singing in the choir. His family had the funeral at the Methodist church to accommodate the large number of mourners.

A new road sign cautions drivers to watch for Amish horsedrawn carriages in the valley beneath Colorado’s Sangre de Cristo mountains. Highway pulloffs and dedicated horse-andbuggy paths are in the works. Amid the serenity and isolation of southern Colorado, hamlets like Westcliffe, La Jara and Monte Vista are welcoming Amish families who are moving West to escape high land prices and community overcrowding back East in Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania. “The reason we moved out West is the farm land is a little bit cheaper and it’s not as heavily populated, a little more open space and a little more opportunity for young people

Coblentz moved to Monte Vista four years ago with his wife, Laura, and their four children. They were the 12th Amish family to settle in the area. “There are 28 families now,” Coblentz said. “Two more families are moving in next week.” Others will likely follow. “I see it happening where there will be a lot more Amish making a westward movement, just because of the land prices,” said Stephen Scott, a research associate at the Young Center. Cropland is worth an average $1,400 per acre in Colorado, compared with $6,000 in Pennsylvania and about $4,000 in Ohio and Indiana, according to a 2007 census by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Cropland values in Pennsylvania jumped 17 percent from 2006 to 2007 but by only 6 percent in Colorado.

Power lines move into digital age H. Josef Hebert



Thomas Alva Edison, meet the Internet. More than a century after Edison invented a reliable light bulb, the nation’s electricity distribution system, an aging spider web of power lines, is poised to move into the digital age. The “smart grid” has become the buzz of the electric power industry, at the White House and among members of Congress. President Barack Obama says it’s essential to boost development of wind and solar power,

get people to use less energy and to tackle climate change. What smart grid visionaries see coming are home thermostats and appliances that adjust automatically depending on the cost of power; where a water heater may get juice from a neighbor’s rooftop solar panel; and where on a scorching hot day a plug-in hybrid electric car charges one minute and the next sends electricity back to the grid to help head off a brownout It is where utilities get instant feedback on a transformer outage, shift easily among energy sources, integrating wind and solar energy with electric-

ity from coal-burning power plants, and go into homes and businesses to automatically adjust power use based on prearranged agreements. “It’s the marriage of information technology and automation technology with the existing electricity network. This is the energy Internet,” said Bob Gilligan, vice president for transmission at GE Energy, which is aggressively pursuing smart grid development. “There are going to be applications 10 years from now that you and I have no idea that we’re going to want or need or think are essential to our lives.”

President Barack Obama wants agencies to lay out specific goals for economic stimulus spending during the next several months, a push to focus more on his $787 billion recovery plan. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will discuss a renewed emphasis on reviving the economy with Cabinet members during a White House meeting Monday. In the wake of reports the recession could be subsiding, Obama wants to stress that agency heads should make economic recovery a priority during an expected jump in federal stimulus spending this summer, administration officials said.


to get started with their own farms,” said Ben Coblentz, a 47-year-old alfalfa farmer from Indiana. “The general public seems to have a little slower pace of life than what it was back east. Everybody here respects us.” Of an estimated 231,000 Amish nationwide, more than 60 percent still live in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana. But from 2002 to 2008, Colorado’s Amish population went from zero to more than 400, according to the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies at Pennsylvania’s Elizabethtown College. Montana, with an estimated 540 Amish, and Colorado now have the westernmost Amish settlements in the U.S. Colorado ranks seventh in the nation in Amish immigration, according to the Young Center.

and at the same time recognize that we have to be adaptable to the economic circumstances.” Anderson also reminded Mainstreet members that they’re welcome to speak up with suggestions about how to push through the downturn. “We really do put a premium on grass-roots brainstorming ideas and turning those into action,” he said. “The ideas come from the membership, they come from the committees, and our job is to turn them into action.” — To reach Blythe Terrell, call 871-4234 or e-mail

Modest homes most active in month of April The entry-level end of the Routt County housing market saw the most activity in April. Statistics compiled by Bruce Carta, of Land Title Guarantee Co., show there were three transactions in the sub-$200,000 segment. Of the 23 transactions, another five were priced between $200,000 and $300,000, and five more sold for between $300,000 and $500,000. Predictably, the halfdozen sales greater than $1 million accounted for the majority of total dollar volume of $16 million. Three houses between $1 million and $1.5 million accounted for $3.46 million, and two in the slot between $1.5 million and $2 million combined for another $3.4 million. A single sale was recorded for $2.3 million. The aggregate milliondollar-plus sales represented 57 percent of total housing dollar volume.

Stagecoach home listed at less than $250,000 A Stagecoach home listed by Dennis O’Connor, of Lincoln Avenue Realty, represents one of the lowest priced homes of its kind on the market. The 1,820-square-foot home is listed at $249,900. The four-year-old home has three bedrooms and four baths but still needs some finish work. O’Connor reports the property is approved for HomePath Renovation Mortgage Financing through Fannie Mae. Benefits include a low down payment and flexible mortgage terms.

Edgemont puts a lid on it Luxury condo project topped out and ahead of schedule


dgemont topped out to its final height of eight stories ahead of schedule late last month, and already contracted owners who want turn-key furniture packages are being asked STORY BY to finalize their TOM ROSS choices. “These are the times when your head is spinning,” said Garrett Simon, vice president of development for The Atira Group. “We’re ahead of schedule, and we want our owners to be able to spend as much of ski season as possible in their new homes.” Edgemont is due to be complete in late February, but Simon said general contractor GE Johnson worked effectively through the winter’s 400-inch snowfall, ensuring that all but one of 16 concrete pours was completed on schedule. As a result, the project is several weeks ahead of schedule. Performance Concrete and Native Excavating are local subcontractors who have played a significant role in the construction of Edgemont. Each level of Edgemont is built using pre-tensioned concrete. But construction workers are well beyond that stage now, installing drywall and even painting, beginning from the ground floors up. Dark brown kitchen cabinetry is being installed in a few units. Many owners will opt to make their own arrangements for interior design and furnishings, Sales Director Mark Murrell predicted. However, Atira has partnered with Slifer Designs, of Edwards, to create detailed furniture packages


for owners with 35 pages of choices from beds right down to area rugs and artwork for the walls. The rustic mountain package developed by Slifer’s designers includes some peeled log furniture in the bunkrooms and throw pillows in classic fur trapper blanket material. However, taken as a whole, the rustic packages vary subtly from the refined mountain package; both include two-dimensional art that reflects modern interpretations of classic wildlife and cowboy images. A discernible trend among the 21 contracted buyers at

The Porches promoting vacation discounts The Porches of Steamboat is offering incentives for ski season 2009-10 by offering discounts of as much as 30 percent for vacation stays booked by Aug. 31. The Porches also is promoting summer stays with a promotion that offers a third night free for people who book two nights in a luxury duplex. The Porches is supporting the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series by offering four free rodeo tickets to its summer guests.


The views of the ski area base from the upper floors of Edgemont Ridge are framed by large roof gables.

Edgemont is the consolidation of two neighboring condominiums to allow for individual floor plans with more flexibility in terms of game rooms and home theater spaces, for example. The condominium homes at Edgemont range from onebedroom units to a 4,000square-foot unit with five bedrooms. “One buyer purchased a four-bedroom unit and bought another unit to get improved ski-in, ski-out access,” Murrell said. Another owner, with four See Edgemont, page 2B


The first building at Edgemont, Edgemont Ridge, has topped out.The second building, Edgemont Landing (lower in the picture) has yet to begin the selling process.

Homestead’s value gets cut Tatanka Ridge estate sold for less than last purchase price Tom Ross




The great room of the Tatanka Ridge home is ringed by a landing on the second floor.

The Jon and Susan Been home overlooking Strawberry Park from 10 acres on Tatanka Ridge sold to Jack and Mary McClurg, of Lone Tree, on April 10 for $2.5 million, $600,000 less than what the Beens paid for the property in late June 2006. The listing broker was Nick

Metzler, of Colorado Group Realty. Cheryl Foote, of Prudential Steamboat Realty, brought the buyers to the transaction. “If somebody gave you the land, you still couldn’t replace the house” for $2.5 million, Metzler said. “They easily put another half million into it.” Foote said the McClurgs were new clients looking for a second home in the range

of $1.5 million. However, they were seeking a home where they would never have another house in their views. That limited many of the fine homes in The Sanctuary and Dakota Ridge. “It was just an unbelievable value for my clients,” Foote said. “I was beyond thrilled for them.” See Tatanka, page 2B

Edgemont continued from 1B bedroom suites in his condo, has added space to allow a home theater and dog-washing station. The owners are contemplating two outdoor fireplaces on the wrap-around, 750square-foot decks. The Edgemont building nearing completion is named Edgemont Ridge with a similar condominium building, Edgemont Landing, to follow in phase two. Phase three would comprise a cluster of seven duplex buildings on the site that borders the southern edge of the ski trails at Steamboat Ski Area. Edgemont Ridge includes a lobby lounge and community mudroom with direct access to the slopes, plus locker rooms for the outdoor pool. Edgemont Landing will include a check-in facility and spa for the project. The developers hope the

Subsequently, buyers were required to put up another 10 percent in mid-construction. Simon said he expects many buyers will arrange their own financing, however Atira Group has arranged for financing locally through Millennium Bank, as well as through Bank of America. It’s so common for real estate projects and custom home developers in Steamboat to tout “panoramic views” that it’s easy to become immune to the term. But it’s not easy to overlook the way the large roof gables spanning 14-foot great room ceilings at Edgemont Ridge frame views of the ski area base and the south valley. — To reach Tom Ross, call 871-4205 or e-mail

Broker: Taking loss in housing market doesn’t deter owners Tatanka continued from 1B

The home was purchased completely furnished with invoices showing the furniture was valued at more than $500,000, and the sound system and TVs were valued at more than $100,000, Foote added. Metzler cautioned against drawing conclusions about the overall luxury home market based on the discounted

price for the 8,536-square-foot home (7,860 square feet of livable space) on the Buffalo Pass Road. The home originally was listed at $3.85 million and subsequently dropped to $3.1 million, and more recently $2.85 million. Metzler said his clients were strongly motivated to sell the home but that it wasn’t about financial duress. “They were getting 10 days

of use a year out of basically a new home, and they felt badly about it,” Metzler said. “They were intent on selling, and that feeling became stronger. They owned it free and clear, and they had the money to take care of it.” Metzler said the owners understood that the market here had shifted, and he surmised that they were focused on an opportunity elsewhere, and taking the loss didn’t

deter them. “Occasionally, you get a seller who is determined, but most aren’t going to do that,” Metzler said. “We shouldn’t expect more of that in the future. The home has five bedrooms and five baths and came with an oversized RV garage at Hayden Airport Garages adjacent to Yampa Valley Regional Airport. Ironically, the McClurgs typically fly their own airplane into Steamboat Airport. A towering fireplace dominates the great room of the home, and a landing that looks down into the living area rims the second floor. Foote said the McClurg’s, originally looking for a second home, are thinking of making this their primary residence. Curious about the derivation of the word Tatanka? Rent a DVD of the film “Dances with Wolves” featuring Kevin Costner, and the answer will be revealed. — To reach Tom Ross, call 871-4205 or e-mail

Keep summer learning going with a kids garden Kathy Van Mullekom



Once school is out, kids look for stuff to do. Gardening could be part of the plan. In fact, gardening could be summer school in disguise, teaching kids math, science, nutrition and physical health lessons that are fun and adventurous. At Coventry Elementary School in Yorktown, Va., schoolchildren have been planting tomatoes, carrots, squash, beans and lettuce in a school garden. Yorktown master gardener Barb Dunbar and other master gardeners guide them through the process. “We planted spinach, and quite a few said they had never had spinach in a salad but were going to try it,” she says. The kids do their gardening organically and plant herbs to host caterpillars that turn into butterflies. “Many parents come back and say their child wants a vegetable garden at home after doing one at school,” says Barb. If you opt to garden with youngsters this summer, use these pointers from Melissa Butler, curator of herbaceous plants at the Norfolk Botanical Garden in Norfolk, Va., where there’s a special hands-on garden set aside for curious kids.

■ Let kids pick the seeds and/or plants. They may not like to eat tomatoes but if they pick out the colorful seed packet with the picture on it or nurture a seedling to maturity, they probably are more willing to give the veggie a taste. ■ Look for vegetable names kids will like — Cinderella pumpkin, Atomic Red carrot and Zebra eggplants. ■ Skip the garden chemicals. It’s a wonderful experience to pick a vegetable like a cherry tomato right out of the garden and pop it in your mouth. ■ Use an inexpensive magnifying glass. See who can find the weirdest, coolest, pretties and tiniest things in the garden. Buy dollar store gifts as prizes. ■ Learn a little, teach a little. The Internet is a wonderful source of information you can share with kids, factoids that will get their attention. For example, did you know a cucumber is 20 degrees cooler on the inside than the outside temperature? ■ Chill out. Even the best farmers have crop problems or failures. A raccoon may get the first cukes, the beans may wither if you forget to water them or a kid accidentally steps on the tomato seedlings while he’s planting squash. Move on to the next packet of seeds or tray of seedlings, and just enjoy being outdoors. Kids at Coventry Elementary School in Yorktown, Va., plant a vegetable garden at school.

A fresh perspective

John F. Russell

he 100-yard dash, the standing broad jump and the tug of war. I’ll never forget Field Day at Lewis Ames Elementary School. The air always was filled with the smell of sunblock, the heat of competition and the sounds of children playing. For some of my classmates, success was measured in blue, red and green ribbons. But after a day in the sun, the truth is that everybody was a winner on Field Day. My last Field Day was more than 30 years ago, but I still can remember spending the day passing from one event to another. I can’t remember where I finished, but I still recall the gravel on the playground where they held the broad jump and the grass of the fields where the running races were staged. I understand that the 100-yard dash didn’t help me get into college, and the three-legged race didn’t teach me the basic skills needed to find a job. Nope, none of the events prepared me for life in general. So why is it that the memories of long-ago Field Days came rushing back last week when my children came home and told me about their version of the same activity at Soda Creek Elementary School? I always enjoyed my Field Days, but after reading the list of events my daughter took part in last week, I couldn’t help but feel a little confused. At Lewis Ames, our Field Day basically was a mixture of track and field events, and a few all-time favorites such as the egg race and, of course, the tug of war. Sadly, I didn’t get the chance to watch my own children last week, and they had to explain to me what some of the events were. I understand that the times have changed, but I was sad that several of my favorites — including the standing broad jump and the 100-yard dash — were not on the list of activities. The football throw, basketball shoot and balancing act have replaced many of my favorites. I understand those. But today, students compete in events that you might expect to find in a dance contest, not on a field. I was happy to see that the potato sack race has survived the test of time. But looking back, I guess the events of Field Day were not as important as the end result. Truth is, nobody will remember who won the tug of war 30 years from now. The idea is to get outside with your friends and classmates, and spend the day running and playing in the sun. My guess is that’s the only thing my children are going to remember 30 years from now.

Fun in the sun at Field Day


Jongeling sets new course after last year’s 10K collapse Luke Graham




The last 100 or so meters of a race often are the best. They hold a certain allure for runners. That final stretch symbolizes the end where the endorphins are the highest and where the weeks, months, years or even a lifetime of training for a goal are just a few strides away from coming to a close. For Dan Jongeling, those last 100 meters have proven particularly difficult. Last year, during the 10-kilometer portion of the Steamboat

Marathon, Jongeling’s life changed on Lincoln Avenue, just a mere 100 meters from the finish line. There, Jongeling — an attorney with a legal aid office in Rapid City, S.D. — collapsed. “I was looking out to the west and one runner absolutely dropped as if Joe Frazier gave him a knockout punch,” said Rob Powers, who was announcing the event from the finish line in front of the historic courthouse. “I’ve been doing this 22 years, and I’ve seen people go down plenty of times. The way he fell told

If you go What: 28th annual Steamboat Marathon When: Today, starting at 7:30 a.m. Where: The day will include a 26.2-mile marathon, which starts near Steamboat Lake; a 13.1-mile half-marathon, which starts on Routt County Road 129; and a 10kilometer race in Steamboat Springs. All the races will finish on Lincoln Avenue in front of the courthouse in downtown Steamboat.

me instantly it wasn’t a trip and fall. It was the kind of fall you instinctually knew that it was medical.” Jongeling’s heart rate had exceeded 225 beats a minute. His heart See Marathon, page 2C


Steamboat Springs lacrosse players Gus Worden, left, and Jasper Gantick will be the first two Steamboat Springs athletes to go on to play college lacrosse.

Kelly Boniface races on Golden Peak during the X-Country mountain biking event Saturday at the Teva Mountain Games in Vail. After winning the expert division a year ago, Boniface took a step up to race in the pro division.

Trail tests riders Tough climbs, tight turns dominate Teva competition


ometimes, the course won. The gnarly trail that defined Saturday’s crosscountry mountain bike race at the Teva Mountain Games in Vail took riders swooping around Golden Peak, high up into the resort’s massive ski area, and back down a tight, twisty nightmare of singletrack. It was so fierce that many of the best riders opted to carry their bikes through certain spots. One woman was so frustrated, she just rolled her bicycle down the path. For many of Steamboat’s finest, however, Saturday was an opportunity to butt helmets with some of the best riders in the world. The “best” came out ahead, showing why they have the fat sponsorships and Olympic team spots. Steamboat’s riders came out pretty well, too. “It’s a tough course, but it was a lot of fun,” Steamboat resident Kate Rench said. Rench traveled with her husband, Craig Rench, to compete in Saturday’s race.



The pair are veterans of Steamboat’s Town Challenge circuit, but they were new to the enormous and competitive field typical at a Teva race. “We feel pretty good,” Craig said. “Our goal was to finish the race in our first year in it, and we did.” Routt County was well represented in the early afternoon race. Eleven local riders rode in the expert and pro divisions. Cory Piscopo finished eighth in the men’s expert division. Craig Rench was 38th in the expert field, and Jeff Minnoto finished 62nd. Barkley Robinson was 18th in the men’s pro class, and Brad Bingham finished 21st. Adam Parke was 32nd in men’s pro, and Jamie Morgan was 41st. Kate Wrench finished 10th in women’s expert. Kelly Boniface, meanwhile, was 17th in women’s pro one See Teva, page 3C

Gus Worden and Jasper Gantick have been key components to the lacrosse movement in Steamboat Springs during the past few years. The two departing Steamboat Springs High School seniors have seen the local game evolve from basic levels to one in which Steamboat rapidly is becoming respected as a hub of Colorado lacrosse development. Now, the duo might be making the biggest statement yet. Worden and Gantick are two of the first Steamboat Springs athletes to go to college to play lacrosse. Worden will play at Adrian College in Adrian, Mich. Gantick is playing at Monroe Community College in Rochester, N.Y. “I’ve wanted to play lacrosse in college since seventh grade,” Worden said. “I knew I could if I kept working at it.” The two are coming off highly successful senior campaigns. They were a big part of helping Steamboat go 13-0 in the Mountain Conference and advance to the state playoffs for the first time in school history. Worden led the team with 24 goals and 72 points on the season. Gantick was a fixture on defense and played in the all-state game. Adrian College is a Division III school that just recently started its lacrosse program. Although it’s still in its infancy, Adrian College has been successful in the early going, something that attracted Worden. Although he looked at colleges in Ohio and North Carolina, Adrian College seemed like the right fit. “I think the changes will be pretty big, because even in Division III, they have good athletes,” he said. “The speed will definitely change.” Gantick took a similar approach. The teens sent out recruiting tapes, and Gantick said he quickly decided he wanted to go to a junior college in hopes of catching on with a Division I or See Lacrosse, page 3C

Stewart, Cook lead Rockies past Cardinals in win R.B. Fallstrom



Ian Stewart took a called third strike in his first at-bat, then got an earful from Colorado Rockies manager Jim Tracy who wants him to be aggressive when he sees a pitch to hit. “If I have an at-bat like that he kind of jumps me: ‘Come on, swing the bat. It’s a weapon, use it. What are you doing?”’ Stewart said. “I kind of like that. He’ll pull me aside and get on me a little bit.”

Stewart followed orders after that, homering twice and matching his career SATURDAY’S high with five GAME: RBIs while Aaron Rockies 10 Cook beat the St. Cardinals 1 Louis Cardinals for the first time in a 10-1 victory Saturday night. Stewart has four homers and 12 RBIs the past five games, including all three of Colorado’s three-run homers this season in the past four games. He hit a three-run shot to right on a full-

count pitch in the fourth and a two-run shot to left-center on a 2-0 offering in the sixth, both off Todd Wellemeyer (5-6). A 10-for-17 surge with four straight multihit games has raised Stewart’s average to .231, and he leads the Rockies with 11 homers. Two of his three multihomer games have come this season, the other against the Astros at home May 12, and 14 of his past 20 hits have been for extra bases. He also doubled Saturday night. Tracy said Todd Helton will take a day off today but not

the 24-year-old Stewart. Not the way he’s going. “When you’re swinging the bat like that, shame on me if I don’t write a lineup from day to day and he’s not in there somewhere,” Tracy said. Cook (4-3) allowed a run and four hits in eight dominant innings, facing no batters with runners in scoring position. He lowered his career ERA against St. Louis to a still hefty 5.61, with the only damage coming on Rick Ankiel’s third homer in the sixth. Cook had been 0-4 against St. Louis.

“I did not realize that, but I’ll take it,” Cook said. “We’re starting to play better.” Clint Barmes added a threerun homer in the ninth off Blake Hawksworth, making his major league debut. The Rockies are 54 under Tracy after going 18-28 under Clint Hurdle. The Rockies reached double digits in runs in three straight road games for the first time since April 7 to 9, 2006, at San Diego, totaling 31 runs after a four-game skid in which they had nine. They’ve beaten the Cardinals four straight times.

Surgery, new diet help Jongeling to overcome collapse and get back on the road

Bumpy road to recovery Jongeling regained consciousness in the ambulance. He told doctors at Yampa Valley Medical Center that he felt fine, but he was flown to Loveland anyway so medical professionals could really check him out. Doctors there decided he needed a quadruple bypass. Jongeling wanted to do the procedure in South Dakota where he would be closer to his family and wife, Amy Yanni. Against doctors’ orders, Jongeling took a bus from Loveland to Denver International Airport to catch a flight home. The next day, he had open-heart surgery. After the surgery, Jongeling’s

Steamboat Marathon

■ The westbound lane of Lincoln Avenue will be closed from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. between Fifth and 11th streets, with each of those streets closed between Lincoln Avenue and Oak Street. ■ On Routt County Road 129 from Cullens Corner to the start of the half marathon, there will be one-way traffic controlled by a pilot car leading traffic on the southbound side of the road. ■ Northbound traffic on C.R. 129 will be diverted to the left lane just past the entrance to Elk River Estates and proceed north to Cullens Corner where traffic controllers will be in place. ■ Southbound traffic on C.R. 129 will be diverted at Cullens Corner onto C.R. 44 then back onto C.R. 129 just north of the airport.

Hahn’s Peak Village Marathon start — 8,128 feet

Jongeling slowly started training again. With the aid of a new diet and Yanni — a woman who has completed more than 100 marathons — Jongeling got back on track and ran a halfmarathon in Tallahassee, Fla., in early February. Although he admitted to being a bit nervous before his return to a running event, his wife is a much different case. When Jongeling collapsed in Steamboat, Yanni was in the midst of running the full marathon. A crew worker found her on course to tell her Jongeling had collapsed.

cardiologist called him and told him he had a heart arrhythmia. Doctors wanted to go back in and put an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator in his chest. Jongeling at first balked at the surgery. “I was thinking, ‘Boy, I just had open heart surgery where they cleaned the arteries. What’s the problem?’” Jongeling said. “I ultimately decided I didn’t need one.” But in early October after Jongeling had started running and training again, the need for an ICD became apparent. “I came in from a regular run in October and came home, and he had fainted in the dining room (while) still in his running stuff,” his wife said. Days later, Jongeling went in for his second surgery, and doctors inserted the ICD.

couldn’t take it, and cardiac arrest set in. “That’s a day that will always stick out in my mind, as well,” said Chuck Cerasoli, a lieutenant paramedic with Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue. Cerasoli and partner Joe Oakland were the first to arrive on the scene. “The key in arrest like that is to get CPR going. I think it’s important that people learn how to do basic CPR. Understand and learn it’s not hard to do. It’s a life-saving step.” Within two minutes and after one shock from heart-resuscitating defibrillators, Jongeling was breathing again. Within 10 minutes he was in an ambulance on his way to Yampa Valley Medical Center. “Going down it felt like a curtain going down,” Jongeling said. “I had a couple thoughts. The first was, ‘This doesn’t feel right.’ The second was, ‘I hope this isn’t the big one.’” Fortunately, it wasn’t. But that fall in the last 100 meters has changed Jongeling’s life forever. He has quit smoking, changed his diet, lost 20 pounds and, more important, said he feels as good as ever. He’s even run two half-marathons since last June. “I think about that day every day,” Jongeling said. “Every day as I’m finishing my run, I always keep an eye on my heart monitor the last block.”

Dan Jongeling runs recently near his home in South Dakota. A year after he collapsed at the finish of the 10K portion of the Steamboat Marathon, Jongeling says he’s in the best shape of his life.

She continued running and completed the race before catching up with her husband at the hospital. In Tallahassee, Yanni — who was running the marathon — had a flashback. “I was pretty far along, like mile 18,” she said. “A police officer on a scooter came at me. I just panicked and was making sure he could see me. He just went past me. It was great. Everything I say sounds trite, but finishing that was truly very

meaningful for us.” Although the couple won’t be back for today’s Steamboat Marathon because Yanni is hurt, they intend to return in the near future. Besides, Jongeling has to finish those last 100 meters. “Instead of running 6.2 miles, I ran six,” he said. “But it would mean a lot. It would. I’ve crossed some finish lines, but crossing that one would feel really, really good. I would finally know I was back.”

Summer Bird flies to win at Belmont Richard Rosenblatt THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


The Detroit Red Wings celebrate after Daniel Cleary scored a goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins during the first period in Game 5 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals on Saturday at Joe Louis Arena, in Detroit. The Red Wings took a 3-2 series lead and moved a step closer to repeating as Stanley Cup champions with their 5-0 win.

Red Wings take 3-2 series lead DETROIT

The Detroit Red Wings got exactly what they needed: a big win and long break. After hearing how tired and beat up they were through four games of the Stanley Cup finals, the defending champions busted out with a devastating display of offense and defense and rolled to a 5-0 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night that put them a win away from another championship. The veteran-laden Red Wings lead the series, 3-2, and are closing in on their 12th Stanley Cup title and fifth in 12 seasons. Detroit can wrap this one up Tuesday night in Pittsburgh. “It’s a huge win,” Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. “The biggest part is the extra days off. That’s the best thing that we’ve got to this point. “We’ll be a better team.” Detroit’s two-game losing

streak in Pittsburgh quickly became a distant memory as the Red Wings returned to the friendly confines of Joe Louis Arena and blew away the supposedly fresher Penguins. The home team is 5-0 in the rematch of last year’s finals, so the Penguins still have that going for them. “When you don’t play well at all, you have nothing to do but improve, and we have to,” Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby said. “The situation is pretty clear for us. We have to go home and be desperate now.” Pavel Datsyuk made his mark in his first appearance in eight games, notching two assists, drawing a key penalty, and knocking leading scorer Evgeni Malkin to the ice. The Red Wings made the Penguins pay for a lack of discipline by going 3 for 9 on the power play. Detroit was 1 for 10 on the power play coming into Game 5. Datsyuk even shook off a

slash from Max Talbot on his sore right foot. “When I play more, I’m more comfortable,” said Datsyuk, who logged 17 1/2 minutes of ice time. “It’s a little bit hard to start with the final series when I miss a couple of games, but I’m ready to play more.” Chris Osgood, on the verge of his fourth Stanley Cup championship — third as the Red Wings starting goalie — made 22 saves for his 15th playoff shutout, third on the NHL career list. He earned an assist on Valtteri Filppula’s goal for his fifth career playoff point, and improved to 11-4 in the finals. Detroit held a 29-22 shots advantage, the first time the home team had the edge. “The other game is three days away, so I don’t know if (the shutout) has much bearing on what’s going to happen in Pittsburgh,” Osgood said. “It’s more important for us to get a little break so we can be at full capacity when

we go to Pittsburgh.” This series looked firmly in the Red Wings’ control after they opened with a pair of 31 victories, but the Penguins seized momentum with two 4-2 wins that made Detroit appear worn out. “We had no jump in the last game when they scored all the goals,” Babcock said. “It didn’t look like they had much jump when we scored all the goals. It’s amazing how tired you look when you’re not scoring and they are.” History suggests the Red Wings will hoist the Cup again as 14 of the 19 previous teams to win Game 5 in a series tied 2-2 have prevailed. Pittsburgh won Game 5 in the Motor City last year in triple overtime to force the series to six games, but then was eliminated at home. The Penguins are 1-5 in Detroit in the past two finals, and Crosby failed to score a goal in all six games.

The Triple Crown season ended the way it started — with an upset. Mine That Bird was all but discounted in the Derby, but won at 50-1 odds — and his 6 3/4-length winning margin was the largest in 63 years. Two weeks later, Borel was obligated to ride Rachel Alexandra in the Preakness for new owner Jess Jackson, and the filly beat Mine That Bird by a length. Jackson said last week Rachel Alexandra would be given a rest and not run in the Belmont. In the Belmont, Mine That Bird was sent off as the 6-5 favorite, but he seemed a bit more frisky than usual in the paddock and on the walk through the tunnel to the track. And he was a little too eager in the race, pulling Borel into contention sooner than anyone expected.

Kent Desormeaux, riding Summer Bird, celebrates after winning the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, N.Y., on Saturday.



This was a Belmont for the Birds. It was Summer Bird, not Mine That Bird and jockey Calvin Borel, who came roaring down the long stretch and won the final jewel of the Triple Crown on Saturday. For a brief moment on the turn for home, Borel looked like a winner. His tough little gelding took the lead, and even Borel believed his victory guarantee was assured. “I thought I was home free,” he said, “but the other horses galloped by.” They sure did. With the crowd of 52,861 cheering on the leaders in the stretch, Mine That Bird passed Dunkirk. But it was Summer Bird who pulled away from them for a 2 3/4-length victory, with Dunkirk second and Mine That Bird a neck back in third in the field of 10 3-year-olds The upset ended Borel’s bid to become the first jockey to win a personal Triple Crown, and he failed to deliver on a guarantee of victory in the Belmont Stakes. Borel won the Kentucky Derby aboard Mine That Bird, then took the Preakness with the filly Rachel Alexandra. Summer Bird, sent off at 11-1 odds, gave jockey Kent Desormeaux a Belmont victory he desperately wanted. “I hope from now on we’ll talk about winning one,” Desormeaux said. Last year, he won the Derby and Preakness aboard Big Brown, only to have to pull up the colt in the Belmont. And in 1998, he brought Real Quiet into the Belmont for a Triple try only to get beat by Victory Gallop by a nose in a heartbreaking defeat. Charitable Man was fourth Saturday, followed by Luv Gov,

Andrew Miller, Marlins hold off Giants, 5-4 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Hanley Ramirez hit two of Florida’s five doubles, leading Andrew Miller and the Marlins, 5-4, against the Giants. Down, 5-2, the Giants loaded the bases in the ninth against closer Matt Lindstrom. Reliever Leo Nunez gave up Aaron Rowand’s two-run single before striking out Edgar Renteria to end it. Miller (2-2) allowed one earned run and four hits in 5 2/3 innings. He won for the first time in four starts, and Nunez got his second save. Jonathan Sanchez (2-5) was the loser.

Dodgers 3, Phillies 2 LOS ANGELES

Brad Lidge gave up a tying home run to pinch-hitter Rafael Furcal with one out in the ninth inning for his second blown save in less than 24 hours, and Andre Ethier hit his second homer of the game with two out in the 12th to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 3-2 victory against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday. Ethier, who had a gameending two-run double off Lidge in the ninth inning of Friday night’s 4-3 win, sent a full-count offering from Chad Durbin (1-2) over the centerfield fence to complete his fourth career multihomer game. In the fourth, he drove a 1-2 pitch into the right-field pavilion off Joe Blanton. Cory Wade (1-3) pitched two perfect innings of relief for the Dodgers, whose bullpen leads the majors with 17 wins.

Brewers 3, Braves 0 ATLANTA

Prince Fielder’s third twohomer game of the season gave Milwaukee all the offense they needed for a win against the punchless Braves. Jeff Suppan (4-4) gave up six hits in 5 1-3 innings as the Brewers took their second �����������������������������

straight shutout win against Atlanta and extended the Braves’ streak of scoreless innings to 22. The Braves have lost three straight games. Atlanta’s Chipper Jones left the game in the fifth with dizziness. Trevor Hoffman, Milwaukee’s fourth reliever, pitched the ninth for his 15th straight save. Fielder gave Milwaukee a 10 lead with his 14th homer, off Javier Vazquez (4-5) in the fifth.

Nationals 7, Mets 1 WASHINGTON

John Lannan threw his first career complete game to lead the Nationals against New York. Lannan (3-5) allowed an unearned run and four hits, facing the minimum number of batters through the first seven innings. He was helped out by a franchise-record-tying five double plays — two 6-4-3s, two 4-6-3s and a head-shaking 9-3-6 that took a while to sort out. Adam Dunn, Elijah Dukes and Nick Johnson homered for the Nationals, who had lost three straight and nine of 10. Washington chased John Maine (5-4) before he could record an out in the fifth inning of a game that lasted 2 hours.

Pirates 6, Astros 4 HOUSTON

Paul Maholm pitched seven innings and drove in a run with an infield single, leading Pittsburgh against the Astros. Jack Wilson doubled twice and drove in a run, and Andrew McCutchen delivered a big two-run single for the Pirates, who snapped a fivegame losing streak at Minute Maid Park. Adam LaRoche and Andy LaRoche each had two hits and an RBI. Maholm (4-2) allowed four runs and eight hits to pick up his first win since April 22. Matt Capps finished for his

13th save in 15 tries. Roy Oswalt (2-3) gave up six runs and nine hits in six innings for the Astros.

Reds 4, Cubs 3, 11 innings CINCINNATI

Jay Bruce scored from third base in the 11th inning when Mike Fontenot’s throw home was high, giving the Reds a win

against the Cubs. Sean Marshall (3-5) walked Bruce to lead off the 11th. Bruce went to second on a wild pitch and advanced to third on Gonzalez’s sacrifice. After an intentional walk to Ryan Hanigan, pinch-hitter Adam Rosales hit a chopper to Fontenot, the third baseman. His throw to catcher Geovany Soto was high, allowing Bruce to score the winning run on

the Rosales’ RBI fielder’s choice.

Padres 6, Diamondbacks 4 SAN DIEGO

Tony Gwynn Jr. reached base a career-high five times and scored the go-ahead run in the six-run sixth inning to help the Padres snap a four-game losing streak. Gwynn had a career-high

three walks, a single, double and a stolen base. Kevin Correia (24) rebounded from a shaky first inning to earn the win, holding Arizona to two runs and five hits in six innings. Heath Bell gave up one run on a walk, a wild pitch and two grounders in the ninth for his 16th. Rookie Daniel Schlereth (0-2) faced four batters and failed to get an out, allowing four runs on one hit, two walks and a hit batter.

White Sox end 4-game skid with 4-2 win against Indians THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Josh Fields homered and Gavin Floyd pitched into the seventh inning, helping the White Sox end a four-game skid. Paul Konerko had a sacrifice fly in the first to end Chicago’s scoreless drought at 23 innings. Floyd (4-5) allowed two runs — one earned — and five hits in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked one. Fields put the White Sox ahead with a two-out solo shot in the fourth inning. It was his third homer of the season and first since May 5 at Kansas City. Bobby Jenks pitched a scoreless ninth for his 13th save in 14 opportunities.


Rays 9, Yankees 7 NEW YORK

Joe Dillon hit a tiebreaking single in the ninth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays touched up Mariano Rivera for the second time this season, defeating the New York Yankees, 9-7, on Saturday. David Price left with a chance to beat CC Sabathia in a muchanticipated matchup pitting a potential ace against an established one. But the Yankees rallied for two runs in the eighth, tying it 5-all against Tampa Bay’s bullpen. Willy Aybar and Ben Zobrist homered to help the American League champion Rays overcome four errors, which doubled their previous season high. Three were throwing errors by All-Star catcher Dioner Navarro.

Mariners 2, Twins 1




Ken Griffey Jr. drove in Ichiro Suzuki with a two-out double in the eighth, leading Seattle to the victory. A day after his club-record 27-game hitting streak ended, Suzuki went 3 for 4 against the

Twins, including a two-out RBI double in the fifth that tied it at 1.

Royals 6, Blue Jays 2 TORONTO

Luke Hochevar worked a season-high 6 2-3 innings, Willie Bloomquist hit a three-run triple, and Kansas City ended an eightgame losing streak. Mark Teahen homered and drove in three runs for the Royals, who earned their first win since a 6-1 victory against Detroit on May 26.

Red Sox 8, Rangers 1 BOSTON

Jon Lester retired the first 19 batters he faced and finished with a two-hitter, David Oritz homered and the Red Sox beat Texas. Michael Young doubled into the gap in left-center with one out in the seventh inning to break up Lester’s bid for a perfect game. Young also singled in the ninth.

SPORTS Bettencourt gets his shot at Memorial

Steamboat Pilot & Today • Sunday, June 7, 2009


For most of a warm and wacky Saturday afternoon at the Memorial, the leaderboard was filled with a “Who’s Who” of this golfing generation, five players with a combined 20 majors, 121 PGA Tour victories and 19 World Golf Championships. Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Davis Love III, Geoff Ogilvy and Jim Furyk. It ended with a “Who’s That?” Matt Bettencourt, a 34-yearold rookie who had never played a PGA Tour event until this year, steadied himself during some nervous moments on the super slick greens of Muirfield Village for a 4-under 68 to share the lead with two-time tour winner Mark Wilson (69). Bettencourt, who has yet to finish in the top 20 and has missed more cuts than he has made, wasn’t expecting to be atop

the leaderboard at the tournament Jack Nicklaus created. The guys chasing him? That was no surprise at all. “The field is so strong here,” Bettencourt said. “Mr. Nicklaus asks you to play, you’re going to play. If you expect to win, you’re going to have to beat the best. And the best are up there.” No one played better than Ogilvy, who was in a tie for 57th and nine shots behind until he turned in a tournament-best 63 as the leaders were finishing up their lunch. He was atop the leaderboard for much of the day until finishing two shots behind. Woods, a three-time winner of the Memorial, made his move on the back nine with a 5-wood into 6 feet for an eagle. Slowed by a careless three-putt bogey on the 17th, he had to settle for a 68 and was four shots behind. Furyk was up-and-down, as were most players, until he stead-

GOLF — PGA ied himself down the stretch and scratched out a 71, putting him one shot behind with Jonathan Byrd, who also had a 71. Love chipped in for birdie on the 18th for a 69 and was tied for fifth with Ogilvy. Els was poised to make a move until he chopped up the par-5 15th and took double bogey, putting him in the group at 207 with Woods. Don’t get the idea that Bettencourt or Wilson, who won an opposite-field event in Mexico this year, are rattled at the moment. “If I take care of what I do ... I will have a great chance of winning,” Wilson said. “If I start thinking about what everyone else is doing around me and, ‘Oh my gosh, that guy’s all got these major championships, he should win this, I shouldn’t,’ then you bet I’m going to lose. That’s the big challenge tomorrow.”

Kuznetsova beats Safina to win French Open title Howard Fendrich



Svetlana Kuznetsova never struck Dinara Safina as a Grand Slam champion in the making when they were children in Russia. Kuznetsova showed up for matches toting a 2-liter bottle of soda and wearing rock band T-shirts. As of Saturday, Kuznetsova owns two major titles — and that’s two more than Safina. Far steadier, if not all that spectacular, Kuznetsova took advantage of the No. 1-ranked Safina’s assorted errors and won the French Open final, 6-4, 6-2. Hardly a work of beauty, the 74-minute match ended, fittingly, with Safina’s seventh double-fault. “She was too tight. She had

so much pressure on her,” said Kuznetsova, who also won the 2004 U.S. Open. “I just played the match. It was just one more match. ... Definitely it was a lot of emotions inside of me, but I control it.” Not at the outset: She lost the first three points and was broken in the first game. Quickly, though, the seventh-seeded Kuznetsova took control, yanking Safina from side to side with the same powerful groundstrokes that eliminated Serena Williams in the quarterfinals. More dispiriting to Safina, perhaps, was Kuznetsova’s defense. Time and time again, Safina — sister of two-time major champion Marat Safin — delivered a hard, well-placed shot. And time and time again, Kuznetsova scrambled to get the ball over

TENNIS — FRENCH OPEN the net. If the champion seems to have a cyclist’s strong legs, it’s because she does: Kuznetsova’s father coached her mother to six world championships and her brother to an Olympic silver medal in that sport. On a cloudy afternoon with the temperature in the low 50s, Kuznetsova also delighted spectators by showing off her soccer skills, juggling a tennis ball off her right foot and knee for several seconds. Her best work came with her racket, and she broke back at love to make it 1-all, then again to go ahead, 5-3. Safina began that eighth game with a double-fault and rolled her eyes. As mistakes accumulated, she muttered to herself or smacked her left palm with her racket.

Paes, Dlouhy win men’s doubles title Chris Lehourites




Leander Paes was in the right place, though it sure looked like it was at the wrong time. Standing in position near the net in the third game of the men’s doubles final at the French Open, Paes got hit right between the eyes by a volley and fell to his knees on the red clay. He recovered quickly, though, and helped Czech partner Lukas Dlouhy rally to beat Dick Norman, of Belgium, and Wesley Moodie, of South Africa, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, on center court Saturday to win the championship at Roland Garros. “It’s just one of those things that happens,” Paes said. “At that moment, I was in a lot of pain, and I basically sat down. I just had a throbbing headache the whole match.” Paes turned his back to the net after being hit by Norman’s fore-

hand volley and then dropped to the dirt. Dlouhy, the chair umpire and the opposing players gathered around Paes, and a bag of ice was brought from one of the courtside coolers. Because the ball hit Paes, it was an automatic point for the other team, giving Norman and Moodie a 3-0 lead. After a trainer checked Paes’ eyes, the Indian veteran slapped hands with Norman before holding his first service game at love. On the third point, Paes sent a forehand smash back across the net toward Norman, but the Belgian jumped to get out of the way. “You got to suck it up and go out there and just play hard,” Paes said. “That’s what professional sports are about.” Paes now has won five major titles in men’s doubles. The first three came with Mahesh

Bhupathi, and the fourth was with Martin Damm. Dlouhy won his first Grand Slam title after losing in three finals, including at the 2008 U.S. Open with Paes. “After you win your first five Grand Slams, winning Grand Slams is just another number,” said Paes, who has also won four mixed doubles titles at majors. “Really, it’s just about going out there and playing hard and working hard and enjoying it.” The 38-year-old Norman is the oldest French Open men’s doubles finalist in the Open era, which began in 1968. He and Moodie were playing only their third tournament together. “They played unbelievable doubles,” Norman said about Paes and Dlouhy. Martina Navratilova, who won two of her 59 Grand Slam titles with Paes, watched the match from the stands with Bill Gates, the billionaire co-founder of Microsoft.

On match point, Safina’s second serve hit the net tape and popped up, sailing beyond the doubles alley. “I was, like, ‘Oh, my God. Double-fault,”’ Kuznetsova said. When Kuznetsova would allow herself to imagine winning the French Open, she always pictured herself dropping to the clay in joy. But the anticlimactic way this one ended didn’t call for such a celebration. Instead, Kuznetsova simply turned to make eye contact with her coach and supporters in the stands, then walked to the net for a handshake and kisses on the cheek. At the other end of the court, Safina covered her forehead with her left hand — disbelief written all over her face — then spiked her racket. “I was a little bit desperate

on the court,” said Safina, who appeared to be fighting tears late in the match and during the on-court trophy presentation. “Didn’t stay tough mentally.” Kuznetsova did, which hasn’t always been the case. Aside from her U.S. Open championship, also in an all-Russian final, Kuznetsova has her own history of faltering at key moments: She entered Saturday, 10-18, in tournament finals.

Bynum ready for rumble against Magic Beth Harris



Andrew Bynum was helpless to stop the Boston Celtics’ pummeling of the Lakers in the NBA Finals a year ago. He’s finally getting a chance to do something about bringing a title to Los Angeles. Even with an awkward brace on his surgically repaired knee, Bynum had the Bynum best start of any Lakers player in the 10075 Game 1 victory against Orlando. He had eight points and four rebounds playing just under 9 minutes in the first quarter. “That’s what we want, that early inside presence out there

NBA FINALS in the ballgame, and the combination of Pau (Gasol) and Drew out there gave us that impact,” coach Phil Jackson said. At the same time, Bynum was helping hold down Dwight Howard, who made just one shot in the game. “That was part of our game plan, just keep him away from the basket and make him shoot shots,” Bynum said. Still a pro basketball baby at 21, Bynum has endured two major knee injuries since becoming the youngest player ever drafted three years ago. He rapidly was coming of age in January 2008 — shooting a league-best 64 percent — when he went up for a rebound in a game and came down on teammate Lamar

Odom’s foot. Bynum underwent surgery and missed the rest of the season while rehabbing. Then, injury struck again. Bynum tore the MCL in his right knee Jan. 31 and missed 32 games. He returned just as the regular season was ending, giving the 7-footer barely any time to prepare for the playoffs. “Playing a handful of games at the end of the season I think was a benefit for him,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. “He didn’t fully get to rehab his knee, but he got as close as we can possibly get before he started playing. So that’s one of the things that we’re really concerned, that he fully rehabs after the season is over and he’s 100 percent. But he’s come back and played with a brace, which has some limitation.”

Todd Trapp doesn’t stop


odd Trapp won’t say he ever thought he actually would win the Steamboat Marathon, but he certainly thought he had a chance. “Winning, it was always on my mind,” Trapp said. “But I also knew that guy who always wins would probably be back.” He’s right. Jason Saitta, eight-time champion of the Steamboat Marathon, will again be in the field when runners take off from Hahn’s Peak Village early this morning. But Trapp certainly could have made a strong case. He was second in last year’s 26.2-mile race. That turned out to just be the start of the Craig runner’s summer in Steamboat. He dominated the Steamboat Springs Running Series and easily wrapped up the men’s season-long championship. That’s what kept rolling through Trapp’s mind last winter. He said he took some time away from serious training after he capped last summer’s run with a second-place finish in his first ultra marathon, the 50-mile Run Rabbit Run event in Steamboat. Unfortunately for Trapp and anyone hoping to see him challenge Saitta, he was never able to get back in shape. “I was playing rec volleyball in a league here in Craig. I stepped on someone’s foot,” Trapp said. Thinking — hoping — it was just a sprain, Trapp waited a few days. When he finally gave in to the pain, Xrays revealed the bad news. His foot was broken, and before he had even started training in earnest, his chances of winning the Steamboat Marathon had vanished. The injury sidelined Trapp through the rest of the winter and the first part of spring. He wasn’t able to get back on his feet and running until about three weeks ago. “I started running again as soon as they took the boot off,” he said. “But I was running at a lot slower pace and running a lot less distance.” Opponents from last year’s running series who saw little but the back side of Trapp might have not even recognized their foe when he first got back to running. He logged a very human three miles. But he’s been building back up slowly. His workout extended to eight miles last week, and he said the strength is slowly oozing back into his legs As for the running series, Trapp said he would take a wait-and-see approach to defending his championship. “It got grueling last year,” he said. “I know I’m not in very good shape, but I would like to get out there and see how competitive I am, then make some decisions.” In fact, he has recovered to the point where he said he hopes to make the trip down U.S. Highway 40 for today’s race. Marathoners can breathe easy. Trapp has no ambition to tackle that kind of distance yet. But the Steamboat Marathon’s 10-kilometer runners should be made aware. If things go according to plan, there will be a shark in their midst.

Steamboat athletes work out to fast, loud music, from Michael Jackson (before he became ‘weird’) to Jay Z


teamboat Springs cycling titan Barkley Robinson refuses to ride with it. U.S. Biathlon development team member Marty Smith won’t work out without it. Trail-running guru Jenna Gruben said it could destroy her thoughts, and endurance mountain biker Kris Cannon said that without it, her thoughts could destroy her. Forget a downtown bypass, Wall Street bailouts and reality show infidelity: There are few debates likely to divide the many and diverse athletes of Steamboat Springs more fervently than one issue — workout music.

listen to a lot of hip-hop on mine, some old school, hard rock and heavy metal. I like to get fired up, so it’s fast, upbeat angry music.” while if you don’t have something to occupy it.” Smith said nearly every member of the biathlon team works out with MP3 players in place. “I never go without it,” he said. “For my sport, it’s all endurance, so it gets boring training by yourself. The music keeps you going.” He said that rule applies in the summer whether he’s running, roller skiing or even kayaking, thanks to a waterproof iPod case and waterproof headphones.

“You better lose yourself in the music, the moment You own it, you better never let it go” — “Lose Yourself,” by Eminem

“You gets no love and I thought you knew it Fool, you know how we do it” — “You Know How We Do It,” by Ice Cube

Those who are open to music in their workouts nearly swear by it. Ben Clark helps coach the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club summer cycling program, guiding nearly 100 young Routt County bikers. He said his music serves a purpose. “Climbing up Lane of Pain on Emerald, a little dose of good music really helps,” Clark said. “I don’t know if it helps take the pain away, but it helps you embrace the pain.” For others, it’s not about drowning out the pain but simply occupying the mind. Cannon competes in ultraendurance mountain bike races. When she finished second in the women’s solo division of the 24 Hours of Moab last October, she did so with music blaring. Her support crew switched out her three iPods with the same regularity that they swapped Camelbaks and greased her chain. “My first 24-hour race, I didn’t have any music,” Cannon said. “It wasn’t good. I was making up rhymes in my head. You lose your mind after a little

Song selection is important, the listeners say. They listed dozens of songs, though nearly every choice had something in common. “It has to be high energy,” 15-time Boston Marathon finisher Jennifer Schubert-Akin said. “It needs to be high energy and loud.” Schubert-Akin said she goes without music on locals trails and sticks to the Fox New Channel and jazz when she’s in her car. But she wrapped up her most recent finish in Boston in April and said she was guided on the quest by some of her favorite 1980s stars. “A lot of it has to do with age and musical tastes,” she said. “My race mix has a lot of old Madonna on it and Janet Jackson. It has Aretha Franklin and some of Michael Jackson’s stuff, before he became really weird.” Nate Bird, meanwhile, adopts a more modern approach, if only slightly. His playlist is filled with Metallica, Rage Against the Machine and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. “When you get going, it’s just background music,” he said. “It needs to be something you can pump your legs to. I

“I got 99 problems …” — “99 Problems,” by Jay Z Workout music isn’t for everyone, and those who usually opted out did so for two main reasons. “I do a lot of road riding, and it’s too dangerous to listen,” Robinson said. “If you’re on the road, you need to be able to hear traffic, and if you’re on a mountain bike, you need to be able to hear if there are other riders coming.” With an eye toward safety, even the most hardcore of the music listeners said they ran or pedaled with just one ear bud in. Still, ultra-marathon stalwart Allen Belshaw said he doesn’t want to take any chances. He’s a regular on Steamboat’s road and trails, even in the winter. “It’s nice to be able to know what’s going on and to be ready to get out of a vehicle’s way,” he said. “I’m taking responsibility for my own safety.” Plus, he said 75 miles into a mind-numbing 100-mile race, he needs all his wits about him. “You never know what you’ll see out there,” he said. “Some races might have rattlesnakes. Maybe you will see a moose around here, or a mountain lion. I’ve always assumed a mountain lion would love a tasty treat like a runner.” Gruben, meanwhile, said when she’s trekking across lonely mountain trails midway through such a massive race, the last thing she wants is Flea or Lars Ulrich hammering in her ears. “I don’t listen to an iPod when I run, but I do listen to rolling rivers and chirping birds,” she said. “It’s nice to be out in nature and listen to what sounds that has to offer me.” — To reach Joel Reichenberger, call 871-4253 or e-mail

Eggs 2 Ovaries organizers had their dedication tested early. In the fundraising event’s first year, Traci Clark, Amy Swartz and other volunteers worked diligently to recruit 22 local and regional artists to decorate ostrich eggs for a silent auction. They recruited gallery owner Kimberly Saari to showcase the eggs in the week leading up to a gala auction event and found

small wooden stands to use for the display. “Last year, we had a stand that was not as sturdy as this stand, and the day before the event, Humpty Dumpty tumbled,” Swartz said, describing the downfall of an egg painted by Denver artist Brent Jones. This year’s batch sits firmly on plastic stands. “Three of us that were on the board spent six hours piecing the egg back together so that it could be on auction,” See Eggs, page 2D

Harry and Shealie discuss challenges of raising pigs


arry and Shealie Jenkins keep their noses to the grindstone at least four hours a week, all for the benefit of Bambi, Flower, Morgan and Mr. McStifflestumps. Harry and Shealie STORY BY water, BLYTHE TERRELL feed, train and clean the pen for the four pigs. The 4H members, who live on the family ranch outside Steamboat Springs, are ROAD TO THE the COUNTY FAIR raising hog quartet for the Routt County Fair in August. Harry, 12, and Shealie, 14, each have a pink male Hampshire pig and a brown female Duroc. “Some people don’t like to name them because they get too attached,” Shealie said. “But I like to name them anyway.” Hers are Bambi, a Hampshire, and Flower, a Duroc. Harry’s are Mr. McStifflestumps, a Hampshire, and Morgan, a Duroc. Harry Jenkins and his dad, Tim, bought the four pigs for $1,125 in April at an auction in Wyoming, Harry said. They weighed 91 to 112 pounds when the Jenkins children logged them at the 4-H weighin May 13. They’ll sell the pigs at the fair and hope there’s profit



Routt County 4-H members Harry and Shealie Jenkins will commit a good chunk of time this summer to raising four pigs to be auctioned in August at the Routt County Fair.

after they reimburse their parents for the 50-pound bags of pig feed. Both also participate in horseback riding through 4-H. Youths pour a lot of effort into their livestock projects, Routt County 4-H Agent Jay Whaley said. According to a survey done last year, youths who do sheep, swine and goat projects spend five months caring for animals. “That means seven days a

week at least once a day caring for that animal,” Whaley said. “There’s no vacations when you’re caring for livestock.” Youths spend an average of $570 on an animal, including feed and supplies. They average about 300 hours of work and net an average of $900 from the sale of each animal. Harry and Shealie will be able to sell only one pig each at auction. Shealie said she was concerned about the economy. Last year, she sold a pig at auction for $2,000 and another privately for $700. See Fair, page 3D

Cindie Anderson plants beet seeds in her garden plot at South Routt Nursery. The nursery is hosting a community garden this year as more residents begin to grow their own vegetables.

It’s not quite a victory garden like those created during World War II, and the irrigation and rich soil make it better than a Great Depression-era farm, but the community garden at South Routt Nursery is set to fulfill a renewed desire for homegrown vegetables as the economy dips. Dan Atkins, the nursery’s manager, said the signs were there for anyone who wanted to see them. As the stock market went down, the beans, cucumbers and squash were sure to go up in gardens across the county. To encourage gardeners, Atkins and nursery owner Chris Zuschlag established 11 plots of earth to rent out for $10 a

month. Zuschlag said the nursery had the irrigation pipes already laid and that it was an easy decision to start a community garden. “With the economy doing what it’s doing, I didn’t feel comfortable bringing in extra material, but we can do this,” he said. “Irrigation is the hardest part of community gardens, and I’ve got that dialed in.” Atkins said beans, squash, cucumber, radishes and many other vegetables will grow well in Colorado’s climate, and although the tomato plants

may not grow to be huge, as long as the gardeners protect their plants from frost in September, they should be able to get a good crop. In fact, Atkins said that according to an article he read recently, if gardeners spend about $60 on seeds, they can expect to reap more than $100 in vegetables. The nursery also may have a farmers market later in the season so the gardeners can sell their excess crop. The gardeners coming to the nursery have varying levels of experience, Atkins said, including some who may have never gardened before. “We’re really kind of schooling them through it,” he said.

hether I’m serving lunch at one of my fine dining restaurants or at my casual Wolfgang Puck Expresses, I always offer some kind of Asian-inspired chicken salad. Not only do I love the way it tastes, but my guests also have come to think of such salads during the past few decades as an ideal midday main course. Main-course salads are very welcome light lunchtime fare, especially as the weather starts to warm up. And Asian chicken salads are among the most popular. The best way to explain their popularity, I think, is with the Chinese principle of yin and yang, the idea that opposites can complement each other, enhancing each other’s characteristics. You certainly see that in action in an Asian chicken salad, which has lots of yin and yang going on: sweet and sour, spicy and mild, hot and cold, crunchy and tender. Think of Chinese chicken salads, for example, with their tender shredded chicken, crunchy almonds or peanuts and crispy rice noodles or chow mein noodles, sweet mandarin orange segments and tangy dressing. Of course, that salad’s popularity only makes me want to do something different, by offering a salad from another part of Asia — Thailand! You can make my Thai Grilled Chicken Salad easily with ingredients found in many supermarkets, ethnic food stores or farmers’ markets today. Head for the Asian foods aisle to find cans of coconut milk and containers

of ready-to-use Thai curry paste. The produce aisle or farmers’ market probably will have fresh lemongrass stalks, which have a lovely citrusy perfume; but you could substitute, instead, some pieces of dried lemongrass, sold in cellophane packets, or even a few strips of lemon zest removed from the surface of the fruit’s peel with a swivel-bladed vegetable peeler. Easy though the recipe is, be sure to allow enough time to marinate the chicken, giving the mild meat lively new flavor; and to make the dressing, which relies on sauteing its aromatic ingredients and reducing its mixture of liquids to give the final results real punch. The salad makes a terrific weekend lunch or a satisfying and refreshing dinner at the end of a long, hot summer day. You also can vary the recipe by substituting steak, pork or turkey breast cutlets for the chicken; or use shrimp, reducing the marinating time to no more than an hour or so. You can even cook the chicken or other featured ingredient in advance, and serve it cold on top of the salad. The result may be a little less yang but no less satisfying!

Thai marinated grilled chicken salad with coconut-lime vinaigrette Serves 4 MARINATED GRILLED CHICKEN: 4 boneless skinless organic chicken breast halves (about 1 pound total weight) 1 can (about 14 ounces) coconut milk 3/4 cup soy sauce 1/2 cup chopped garlic 1/2 cup chopped scallion, white parts only 1/4 cup chopped fresh ginger 1 organic lime, 1 thinly sliced COCONUT-LIME VINAIGRETTE: 1 cup peanut oil or vegetable oil 1/2 cup coarsely chopped garlic 1/4 cup coarsely chopped ginger 1 stalk fresh lemongrass, cut into 3inch pieces 1 tablespoon Thai green curry paste 1 cup plum wine 1/2 cup sake 1 can (about 14 ounces) coconut milk 2 tablespoons fresh organic lime juice Salt Freshly ground black pepper SALAD: 1/2 pound mixed organic baby salad greens 1 cup finely shredded organic carrot 1/2 cup very thinly sliced white onion 1/2 cup very thinly sliced scallion, green parts only 2 red radishes, very thinly sliced 1/2 cup toasted cashews 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves 1 organic lime, cut into 8 wedges Start marinating the chicken 8 to 24 hours ahead.

Eggs continued from 1D Clark said, adding that the egg garnered the second highest bid of the 2008 collection. Jones volunteered to make a replica of the downed egg for the winning bidder. “Nobody could tell — because you couldn’t see the back of it.” Now in its second year, Eggs 2 Ovaries will place 24 uniquely decorated eggs up for auction at 7 p.m. Friday at Cottonwood Grill. Proceeds from the event — which includes dinner, live entertainment by a Frank Sinatra impersonator and other auction items — will go toward education, awareness and support related to ovarian cancer for women in the Yampa Valley.

vinaigrette. In a medium-sized saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, ginger and lemongrass and saute, stirring continuously, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, add the curry paste, and saute until fragrant and slightly darkened in color, about 1 minute, taking care not to let it burn. Add the plum wine and sake and stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan. Raise the heat and boil, stirring occasionally until the liquid has reduced to a glaze, 7 to 10 minutes. Stir in the coconut milk and continue boiling until the liquid has reduced by half, about 10 minutes more. Pour the reduced liquid through a fine-meshed strainer set over a mixing bowl. With a rubber spatula, press down on the solids. Discard the solids. Let the liquid in the bowl cool. Then, transfer it to a blender. With the blender running on high speed, drizzle in the remaining oil to form a thick emulsion. Pulse in 1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Preheat an outdoor grill, an indoor grill, or the broiler. Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade and grill or broil them until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. (Carefully cut into the center of one to check for doneness.) To assemble the salads, put the greens, carrot, onion, scallions and radishes in a mixing bowl. Drizzle lightly with about 1/2 cup of the vinaigrette and toss well. Mound the salad attractively on 4 large dinner plates. With a sharp knife, cut each chicken breast crosswise into thin slices and arrange on top of each salad. Garnish with cashews and cilantro leaves. Drizzle more vinaigrette over the chicken. Place 2 lime wedges on each plate for guests to squeeze over the salads to taste. Serve immediately.

Ovaries got its start in Steamboat Springs in 2008 after Swartz and Clark had talked about the idea at a cocktail party. Money raised at the first Steamboat Springs event has helped two Yampa Valley women with medical costs related to ovarian cancer, Clark said. “The way that we set this up last year, we wanted the money to go directly to the women — we actually cut them checks,” Clark said. Proceeds also helped fund bilingual bookmarks outlining symptoms of ovarian cancer. The inaugural event netted about $7,000, and the average egg bid was about $300. Swartz called ovarian cancer a “silent killer” with no available early detection, and organizers said the cause is a personal one. “There are a lot of people who have personal situations where they have friends or family members who have dealt with ovarian cancer,” Clark said.

The eggs Eggs decorated in media including paint, wire, wax and wood spent a few weeks at Artists’ Gallery of Steamboat before moving to K. Saari Gallery where they were on display for First Friday Artwalk. The eggs will be available for viewing at Steamboat Art Museum until the day of the auction, organizers said. Artists from each gallery have contributed their creative streak to the event, and Swartz already has a list going of artists who want to participate in 2010. “It was like when Amy contacted the artists from last year, it just spread like wildfire,” Clark said. Participating artists seemed more comfortable with the canvas the second time around, Saari said, and each egg has its creator’s personality all over it. Many of the works are named, and each has its own story, she said. “It’s such a unique way to work. I think that’s what draws so much attention to the auction, is that it’s not a painting; it’s like a sculpture,” Saari said. — To reach Margaret Hair, call 871-4204 or e-mail

75 YEARS AGO From the Friday, June 8, 1934, edition of The Steamboat Pilot Henry Haas, general foreman for the Ed Selander paving project in Steamboat Springs, has a crew of 30 men at work hauling rock from the pit on the Stees ranch to the vacant lots on the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Seventh Street. Trucks are dumping sand and gravel into the huge depression on this vacant property. The crusher will be installed there, and the mixing will be completed at this point for the entire project. There will be about 70 men employed as soon as the work is well under way. A big gas-operated shovel is

excavating the sand and rock for the trucks, and another shovel will be used to dig up the streets preparing for the laying of the concrete. There are eight teams busy now opening up a second pit. From the east town limit, the cement will be 20 feet wide and will widen to 30 feet beginning at the bathhouse. Several blocks in the center will be paved the full width of the street. The 30-foot width will continue to the Cabin Hotel and then the concrete will nar-

row down to the 20-foot width. On both sides of the concrete, the street will be graveled, but that is a different project. An immense tonnage of rock and sand will be required for the project. It is all to be screened and mixed in accurate proportions. The amount of cement needed is about 1.2 million pounds. The vacant property on Lincoln and Seventh is an ideal spot for dumpage of rock and sand, the natural depression giving ample room for piling up the material.

Nearly 1 million rainbow trout are being hatched Rainbows by the thousands — you can see them at the fish hatchery where Sam Stevens is

taking care of them — 910,000 little wriggling bit of animation that eventually will be beautiful rainbow trout in the streams of Northwest Colorado. The eggs, secured from local streams, are hatching by the hundreds every day. It is an interesting sight to see them squirm tail first out of the shell. They are not then real fishes but more like a fish egg with a head and a tail. The egg yolk adheres to the underside of the tiny thread-like fish and gradually is absorbed. When these quivering little wrigglers are about a month old, then Sam Stevens has how many mouths to feed? It takes a lot of food to keep them satisfied; they are voracious eaters and grow rapidly once they are placed in the ponds.

4-H members’ animals to be sold at fair in August Fair continued from 1D After that, she had to pay back her parents for the pounds of pig feed her animals ate. “I made a profit last year,” Shealie said. “This year, we’re a little worried because there’s a lot of kids doing it, and the economy is low.” Numbers are going up, Whaley confirmed. Routt County 4-H members are raising 280 pigs, lambs, steers and goats. They raised 229 across the categories last year. And

there are more members: 260 this year compared with 219 last year. Selling animals could be more difficult this year, Whaley acknowledged. But it’s also a lesson in business, he said. “That animal is their small business, and they have to care for it, work on it and market it. … It’s also a lesson in supply and demand and the reality of life,” Whaley said. Supporters of 4-H are setting up a fund to help buy animals and support the youths,

he said. Back at the Jenkins ranch, Harry and Shealie are going about their business. Their pigs are gaining weight at a good pace, which means they’ll weigh enough to be sold at fair, Shealie said. This is Harry’s first year, and he’s learning from his sister and from experience. “If you’re standing too close to them, they’ll chew on your pants,” he said. “If you put your foot up, they’ll chew on your boot.” And the family has got-

ten used to wrangling loose pigs, said their mom, Mary Jenkins. “The good thing about them escaping is each time they get a little better at coming back,” she said. Of course, the children do most of the work and will keep at it through the Routt County Fair in August. “They’re very talented,” Mary Jenkins said. — To reach Blythe Terrell, call 871-4234 or e-mail

Master gardeners will help Garden continued from 1D the gardeners must only come in occasionally to fertilize and harvest their crops. On Thursday morning, community gardener Cindie Anderson placed additional bricks in her plot to create a walkway and planted beet seeds. She said she has gardening experience, but her current house doesn’t offer the gardening space she needs. “The hot button for me was the automatic watering,” she

said. “What private individual would do something like that and provide water and everything else?” The group also will have sessions with master gardeners to help them improve their crops as the season progresses, Zuschlag said. The community garden group has registered itself with and will abide by that organization’s bylaws. The next closest registered community garden is in Granby.

Hayden career, technical center gets another grant The Hayden School District’s Babson-Carpenter Career and Technical Education Center was awarded a $15,000 grant from the El Pomar Foundation, of Colorado Springs. Kevin Kleckler, the center’s director, said a $75,000 grant the district recently received from the Gates Family Foundation and $140,000 from the Twentymile Coal Co., to provide welding certification for employees of the company, would pay off most of the remainder of the loan on the $1.6 million addition to the facility. The district began using the facility, which offers welding, building trades, furniture building, auto mechanic, auto body collision and refurnishing and drafting classes, in November.

Kleckler said he’s still trying to raise money for furniture and lockers for student use at the center but that it’s well on its way to providing a safer learning environment for students in the Yampa Valley. “They get a higher level, higher quality learning experience,” he said. “This has been huge. It’s such an asset for our valley to train them in trades that are viable for the rest of their lives.”
